WINDSOR— Two Windsor residents have complained to police after finding copies of the “Aryan Alternative,” a white supremacist newspaper, in their driveways.

According to Windsor Police Chief Robert Porti, the literature was delivered to several homes in the town a little more than two weeks ago, but only two residents complained about a truck driving around making the deliveries.

Police responded to the calls, but were unable to find anyone making the deliveries.

Porti said that the department is not investigating any further because “no crime has been committed.”

“As distasteful as some may find it, it’s not illegal,” he said. “It’s protected in the Constitution.”

Porti said that there was a similar incident in the Smithfield area several months ago, but this is the first time it has happened in Windsor, and he warned against giving the incident too much attention.

“What these folks want is publicity,” he said.
